They had been married for 53 years. Through those years they had three wonderful sons, Antonio Granillo, Rafael Torres and Francisco Granillo married to Amanda Espinoza. He has one grandchild Arisa Molina, married to Manny Molina and one great grandchild Joy Molina. Antonio was born in Brawley, CA and moved to Patterson CA where he grew up.

He worked for the United States Postal Service for 35 years and retired in Albuquerque New Mexico, then moved to Arizona and finally settling in Henderson, NV. He and his wife Adela loved the slow paced life and leisure in Henderson. He loved riding his Harley Davidson motorcycle on the weekends and even more so when he rode with his son Rafael Torres. He loved his hobbies of custom woodwork which he shared with his family and friends and even made candies for special occasions. He enjoyed football and his favorite team was the Pittsburgh Steelers and boxing.
